Russia will produce around 53Mt of cement, according to Eurocement Group experts. This is a 9.0 per cent increase on the previous year’s 48.5Mt. A record high output of 83Mt of cement in Russia was recorded in 1990, but it was followed by a protracted slump. In 1998, cement output fell to 25.9Mt. The steady growth in cement production, begun in 1999, is continuing, averaging 10 per cent in annual terms.
